Rare Art Deco Ronson Touch Tip Lighter with Clock

You are bidding on a very hard to find Ronson Touch Tip table lighter with clock. The clock is in running condition, but could use some Fast/Slow adjustment. I can't remember if it was running fast or slow. The lighter should work. The push button mechanism works well, and rotates the striker wheel. Add a flint and fluid and it should work fine. I don't know exactly how the Touch Tip works, but I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work, if you add flint and fluid.

When I first bought this I thought it was black and chrome, but in strong light it appears to be a very dark mottled brown. I believe this makes it the harder to find Tortoise Shell version. I wiped it off but it could use a little more cleaning. It does show use in its 70 year history. It has some wear,scratches and crazing to the ivory enamel around the clock. But overall I would still grade it VG to VG+.

My reserve is well below what similar Ronson lighters with clocks have sold for in the past month.
